According to a report filed by Saeed Shah of McClatchy Newspapers – Pakistan Orders Troops to Return Fire if Attacked on Afghan Border.
But who, pray tell, would be attacking Pakistan. Are they at war?
Pakistan’s top military commander has issued orders to the country’s troops to return fire should they come under attack again from U.S.-led coalition forces in a move likely to increase tensions after last week’s American-led raid on two border outposts that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.
Gen. Ashfaq Kayani, Pakistan’s army chief, issued the order in a letter to his troops that set out the rules of engagement against any “aggressor.”
The US, an aggressor? Really?
